Switching users in app

I have just downloaded the latest version of dropbox and it has loaded up my partners account. I can find no way to log out and sign in myself. I'm sure I must be the first person ever to share a computer with their partner and also want to use dropbox so appreciate this must be an incredibly niche and rare request that will probably require the software to be rebuilt from scratch. Or I'm pretty dumb. Or, why the fnurgen is there not a simple 'log out' and sign in option?

You can't use two Dropbox accounts under the same comptuer user account. As Dropbox is intended for a single user, there is no "sign out" option that allows someone else to sign in. Instead, you would need to use a web browser and access yoru account through the Dropbox website, or install your Dropbox account under a separate comptuer user account.
